What do we do when faith is in opposition with psychology? Perhaps these two disciplines do not have to be completely in disagreement. Often, if we are people of faith, it is the full truth that sets us free. An integration of theology and psychology can be very healing. That is what the evolving of Family Faith into Faith and Life is all about ? integration of faith and science, because they do not have to be polar opposites. I enjoy a practice as a therapist where I treat those who are professing Christians as well as those who do not practice a certain religion.

Tim Willert BURBANK -- An 80-year-old Burbank grandmother got her day in court and socked it to the city. Gladys Dantagnon was walking near her home in the 800 block of Clybourn Avenue on Dec. 8, 1998, when she stepped into a depression in the sidewalk, lost her balance and fell helplessly to the ground. Dantagnon, who was 78 at the time, fractured her right shoulder, right middle finger and a rib. She filed a claim against the city seeking $85,000 in damages -- $57,653 of it to go toward medical expenses -- alleging that the sidewalk was in a state of disrepair and that the city had been notified about it by residents on several occasions.

I am writing to raise awareness of what it means to be a caregiver, which, in many cases, is a thankless job done out of love. I am a family caregiver for my 87-year-old father who was diagnosed with vascular dementia three years ago. It isn't an east task. Yet, contrary to public belief, most family members care for loved ones in their home, rather than institutionalizing them. However, for whatever reason, there is still a push by Medicare HMOs to have family caregivers institutionalize their loved ones instead of helping them.

As a pastor, and as someone who is studying to be a psychotherapist, I believe in the integration of theology and psychology. Perhaps 10 years ago I would not have. Psychology is a behavioral science, like medicine is a hard science. There is data and research to support this discipline. When our bodies are sick, we need medication to heal them. Likewise, when our brains are not functioning properly physiologically, we need psychotropic medication. We would not withhold insulin from a diabetic and Christians should not be ashamed to take mediation when they have a physical problem functioning, such as in depression.

Religion may be good for the soul, but there's now evidence it's good for a healthy mind, too. A study by researchers in Canada has discovered that regular attendance at religious services can provide "significant protection against depression" - with the incidence of clinical depression dropping by 22% among those who regularly attend church. Marilyn Baetz, head of the department of psychiatry at the University of Saskatchewan and a co-author of the study, which tracked 12,000 Canadians over 14 years, said she's a little puzzled as to why regular religious attendance helps so much.

BURBANK — A senior peer counseling program at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center is breaking down barriers and reaching out to Latino seniors. The new program that caters to Spanish-speaking seniors, Familias Ayudando Familias — which means families helping families — was established through a grant from the California Endowment, a privately run, statewide health foundation. "We're having to branch out in many ways to help," said Carolyn Young, senior outreach supervisor for Providence Health System's San Fernando Valley area.

BURBANK — The Union Rescue Mission that runs the winter homeless shelter at the Burbank Armory plans to appeal to city and state officials soon for increased shelter aid, expecting a Depression-scale increase in homelessness. “We’ve been speaking out to public officials, but I don’t think anybody is quite ready to see the gravity of this,” said Andy Bales, chief executive of the Union Rescue Mission, which runs a number of shelters in the Greater Los Angeles area.

Disappointing Melissa Brown of Montrose is an artist. In some ways it seems unfair to be unduly hard on an accomplished actor/director such as Robert Redford. I think his average film is more watchable than most. But quite frankly, I was bored with this movie, its story and its local golf hero. The nostalgic backdrop to the film created an air of unreality (c'mon, there's nothing dreamy about America's Great Depression) while failing to develop the theme of golf and its enduring mysticism.

I couldn't help but be struck by the headline. It was about a study published in a journal called "Neurology." Fancy title, usually has some good stuff in it. Well, the title of this article was that "Women Who Suffer From Chronic Headaches Are At Greater Risk of Depression." Let me make sure you took all that in. "Women Who Suffer From Chronic Headaches Are At Greater Risk of Depression." They need a study to tell us this? As a psychotherapist and marriage-and-family therapist, it is important for me to keep up with the important psychological data of our time.
